A few days ago the UK newspaper the Daily Mail reported that UK birth rates are falling (1).
Well, it’s not rocket science. Many couples in the UK simply cannot afford to have children. Speaking as a personal trainer who specialises in mothers let me give you some basic information from one of my websites (2.)
Many couples in the UK cannot afford to have more children. When you go on maternity leave your income halves. At present minimum wage is £7.83 per hour for those over 25. Let’s assume you work for 40 hours per week. That equates to £313.20 per week. After-tax and national insurance that works out at £274.38.
Childcare per child is £45 per child per day. Assuming you work for 5 days that works out at £225 per week. Hence a mother who returned to work would take home £274.38-£225= £49.38 per week.
That works out at £1.23 per hour over a 40 hour week.
Many people are on zero-hour contracts so they don’t know one week to the next if they have work. Inflation is 3%. Wage rises if you are lucky are 1%. Hence your wages are worth less and less. Hence many people simply cannot afford to have kids.
Worse still many people can’t afford to put anything into a private pension. So they retire on the state pension of £113 per week- around 40% of what they were struggling to live on to start with. Hence so many pensioners work in supermarkets.
Not many world leaders have the foresight of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Under his new policy (3) Hungarian women with four children or more will be exempted for life from paying income tax, the prime minister has said, unveiling plans designed to boost the number of babies being born.
So what is the answer? The answer is simple multiple sources of income. People should try to have several sources of income-not just their wage.
Once before he became President of the USA Donald J. Trump was interviewed on the David Letterman show and was asked what he would do if he lost everything and had to start again.
He said (without hesitation) “I would find a good network marketing company and get to work.”
The audience started booing.
To which he replied, “That’s why I am sitting here and you are sitting there.”
Bill Gates-the world’s richest man has said: “If I could be given the chance to start again I would choose network marketing.”
So what is network marketing?
Let me tell you.
I have some good news and bad news.
The bad news is we sometimes have recessions.
The good news is that the network marketing industry has not been affected.
The reason being.
Most people do network marketing every day of the week.
They just don’t get paid for it.
It’s all about recommending and promoting.
If I said to you “Those strawberries at the local green grocers are
great you should get some.”
That’s network marketing.
It’s something you do every day of the week.
With expert fashion without even thinking about it.
So what would you prefer?
To get paid for something you normally do anyway.
Not get paid?
Well if you want to get paid.
There is a catch!
You need to do several things.
Don’t you DARE change anything about yourself.
Continue to recommend and promote like you always have done.
This is not pyramid selling. Pyramid selling is where I buy a biro pen (for example) for £1. I sell it to Tom for £2. Tom sells it to Dick for £3 who sells it to Harry for £4. It’s illegal because at some stage someone will end up wish so much stock at such a high price nobody can sell it.
With network marketing, everybody pays the same price.
In many cases all you literally have to do is ask a few questions, text your prospect a youtube video, ask your prospect to listen in whilst driving on the way home (or whilst on the bus.) Then as soon as they get home give them a call and get started.
It’s that simple.
Now if we can all do this then we can re-populate ourselves because we can’t rely on the politicians to do it.
In the great wars, people were willing to lay down their lives to protect their country. It’s now time for you to step up and join a network marketing company. I get all my clients into one.
